Brat Update III: Inside and Outside
Posted by Faust on Wednesday, July 31, 2019 4:12 PM
The BRAT keeps on rolling! Well, not physically, since I haven’t done the wheels and tires yet, but it’s metaphorically well on its way!
 
One part of cars I really like is the interior, and while it’s simple, the old AMT Brat has some nice detailing. The texture of the carpet and the detail on the door panels and seats is great; it’s a bit too bad it isn’t going to be more visible! Still, I’ve had a good time building it, and I’m glad that I cut the bucket separate from the bed. Best move ever.
 
I’ve also got the paint on, and that meant it was time to look at the decals. Since this is an original BRAT, not the reissue, I don’t have that super-nice looking new sheet to work with. I had a scan of it, but that’s cheating, and I wanted to make the originals work. WOW… that’s quite a fight!
 
Check out the ups, downs ins and outs at the link below! Despite what it looks like, I think things are getting close!

Good looking interior, especially using original issue decals.  Looking for more updates.

I build models because I can't afford the real thing!

Thanks!

The next post will see it all done! Of course, it has to get there first... :)
